Monaco vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Prediction and Betting Tips
Monaco hope to maintain their CL form
The Monegasque entered this year’s Champions League in the semi-final of the qualification round. They played in that round against Sparta Prague and beat them 5-1 on aggregate. Moreover, Niko Kovac’s team had sealed the deal in the first leg in Prague after beating the Czechs 2-0.
However, Monaco’s success in the Champions League isn’t reflected in the Ligue 1. One point from two games isn’t the start that the Red and White hoped for a start to their campaign. Monaco drew 1-1 with Nantes in their opening match. Furthermore, Kovac saw his team suffer the first defeat of the season on Friday away to Lorient.
Monaco Key Points
- Monaco have won five of their last ten competitive games
- The Monegasque scored in three of their last four matches
- BTTS happened in 50% of Monaco’s last ten matches
Shakhtar Donetsk will be keen for a good away result
Like their opponents, Shakhtar as well started their 2021-22 campaign at the semi-final of the qualification round. However, the Ukrainian’s task wasn’t as easy as Monaco’s. Indeed Shakhtar did win both legs 2-1 against Genk. But the matches were tight and Coach Robert De Zerbi’s team had to fight their way into the first leg.
After conceding the first goal in Genk, Shakhtar came back in the second half scoring twice from their two shots on target. Coach De Zerbi played a very cautious game closing down his defense. Eventually, that paid off as Tete and Alan Patrick were found the back of the net in two well-operated attacks that caught the Belgian defense off guard.
Shakhtar Key Points
- Shakhtar scored in their last nine competitive matches
- The Miners have won nine of their last ten matches
- De Zerbi’s team have won their last four competitive matches
Monaco vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction
Monaco last played in the Champions League group stages in 2018-19. Consequently, they are eager to play again in Europe’s most prestigious competition. On top of that, Kovac’s team had two very convincing performances and they are the favorites to qualify.
Contrary to their opponents Shakhtar took part in the Champions League group stage in the last four editions. Last year, the Miners had great results beating Real Madrid twice and drawing with Inter Milan 0-0 home and away.
